It is SUCH A SHAME that the the SMB is remembered for the same 4 or 5 songs that are played on Classic Rock stations. He had some really wonderful albums that never receive airplay. Just hearing the first few notes on a Steve Miller Band Song gets the radio turned off. No if and or buts. Most Classic Rock songs I can do without. As Ashamed as I am to admit it I prefer Kayne West to The Eagles these days. About the only Band from my Youth I still listen to is Pink Floyd.
Having a 14 yr old girl has changed my listening habits tremendously. 10 years ago I hated RAP but now, not so much. Some of it is quite brilliant.

Anyone Know what R A P stands for? It surprised me.

Well, to be honest, I switched to country many years ago. I still listen to classic rock, and what my boy refers to as "butt rock" (or as they are more commonly known as Hair Bands from the 70s and 80s like Motley Crue and Van Halen) but I always gravitate toward country.

Please notice I refrained from making up something insulting about rap. It's pretty amazing when I show restraint... but I think this time its the pain meds. LOL

For me I like country if its the old kind, Johnny Cash, Lynn Anderson, Faron Young, Hank Snow, Charlie Rich, Etc. ( You Get the idea. ) Or Outlaw Country. Willie Waylon and the boys.

Achhy Breaky Heart and Boot Scootin Boggie stopped my listening to country stations long ago. ( the exception being the Dixie Chicks )

I like old and new country... but I like most old music. I used to have a CD of very old popular music from the 1920s and 30s. Anything to take me back to different times that I haven't had the pleasure of living in.
